Steven J. Schultz

May 8, 1951 - April 25, 2006

Steven J. Schultz, 54, of the town of Vernon, was called home Tuesday, April 25, 2006.

Born in Milwaukee on May 8, 1951, he was the son of Geraldine M. (nee Sherwin) and the late Walter W. Schultz.

For the last 26 years, Steven was the president and owner of Sherwin Industries. He was a man with a generous, huge and caring heart that simply could no longer sustain his unyielding earthly spirit. That spirit will lovingly live on in all of those whose lives he touched.

Steven is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Valerie (nee Hennig); his beloved children, Alan, Jay (Kari), Chad and Stephanie; his sisters, Karen Craig and Linda (Earl) Teschendorf; his nephew, Jason (Dana) Craig; and his niece, Jennifer Craig. He is the cherished Papa of Lilyen Schultz and is further survived by other family and many special friends.

Visitation will be held from 4 p.m. until the 7 p.m. funeral service Wednesday, May 3, at Hartson Funeral Home, 11111 W. Janesville Road, Hales Corners.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are deeply appreciated to the American Heart Association, the National Diabetes Association or an organization of your choice.

Hartson Funeral Home, (414) 425-9797, is serving the family.
